HANDS down, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres is the weirdest artist France produced in the first half of the 19th century. His highly refined painting style, built on exquisite draftsmanship and typically mixing heady ambition with a deep sense of artistic knowledge, can be breathtakingly moving. It can also be downright ludicrous. And sometimes it's both -- in the same canvas.

Two gunmen shot and killed Haiti's most prominent radio journalist as he pulled into the courtyard of his radio station for a morning newscast. Jean Dominique, who was in his 60s, died at a hospital in Petionville, where Radio Haiti Inter is located. A station worker also was killed in the attack, said Radio Haiti journalist Assad Volcy. There were no immediate arrests. The U.S. State Department said it was deeply troubled by the slaying of Dominique, a strong advocate of a free press in Haiti.

The last thing you expect from a movie about a man who can't move any part of his body save for his left eyelid is for it to be expansive, gorgeous and uplifting, but that's exactly what Julian Schnabel's remarkable "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly" turns out to be.

Like dozens of artists making movies these days, Julian Schnabel and Crispin Glover consider themselves artists first, filmmakers second. Both have films out this week, based on similar subjects, which is pretty strange when you think about it. Glover's "It Is Fine. Everything Is Fine!" is based on a story by Steven C. Stewart, who had cerebral palsy and died recently.
